    The last of legends, may he rest in peace.

  2. That’s the end of a chapter in world history… all of ‘the few’ are gone :-/
    Gone but not forgotten
    RIP

  3. Thank you for your service wing commander Paul Farnes. RIP.

  4. Closing a chapter on a VERY important part of our history…

  5. Its one of those surreal days given today’s events . Kirk Douglas passed at the age of 103. He too is “The last” of the golden age of leading men in holly wood. These guys are apart of the “Best Generation” that believed and fought for democracy ending a era of populism and corruption.
